The Leaves Change, and So Do My Scheduled Recordings on the DVR, Part 1

17 Oct

Sometimes I get so abnormally excited about the promise of new fall TV shows that it feels like I fill my date card with a new one every hour. And this year was no exception. There were so many shows I wanted to watch, but at the same time, I couldn’t abandon my old shows (I still have to pay attention to them. It’s like having a second child – how do you split your time and love? It’s tough, but so rewarding), so I narrowed it down to the top 8 highest potential programs.

Just like having a second kid! And by kid, I of course mean television show.

7pm – The Emmy’s are starting! The only night of the year when TV actors are not overshadowed by movie stars.

7:03pmThat opening was funny! Way to kill it, Jimmy Kimmel and various delightful women of comedy. And props to Lena Dunham for being naked, as usual.

7:07pm – What’s wrong with Jon Hamm’s collar? Maybe his privates are so large that it alters the way the tops of his clothes fit?

7:11pm – Watching the year in comedy recap is like watching a slide show at a good friend’s wedding. That’s how emotional and happy it makes me.
